  • ok so thursday night baby was really quiet.. too quiet.. friday morning nothing no movement .. nothing.. i tried everything.. juice .. laying on different sides.. loud music.. eating.. different positions.. nothing.. so i called my doctor and he told me to come in for a nst.. well went there and right away babys hb nice strong and loud.. so big relief... but she still wouldnt move.. so they have this little buzzer thing.. i dont know if anyone has had it used before but yea.. they buzzed her twice in a row.. one on each side of my tummy.. INSTANTLY pissed her off.. i sat there for an hour and a half hooked up to the monitor getting the life kicked out of me.. oh yea.. and i had to mark every movement.. so .. the whole page was like little arrows.. lol.. it was nice to know she was fine though.. went home and the weekend went good.. contractions here and there.. but nothing major.. Monday morning i had my appointment.. and i have no idea how but in one week i LOST 6 pounds.. i have been eating like a cow.. cake, potatoes, steak, pastas, pizza like crazy.. and i lose six pounds.. i dont get it.. but my blood pressure is good.. babys hb is great.. im still dialated a 3.. well a 3+... and effaced at either 80-90%.. doctor said he would love for me to hit 38 weeks now since i made it past 37.. grrrrrrrr.. so i have to stay on the terb for at least another 3 days.. then he said i can quit it and if by monday.. the first of october.. if i am still pregnant and make it to my appointment.. he will see about semi-induction.. i have to get my contractions regular and make a tiny bit of change in my cervix.. then he will break my water if its possible.. so.. a little light at the end of the tunnel.. oh yea.. i still havent packed my hospital bag.. lol.. maybe i should.. yesterday i put together babys crib, bouncy chair, got the carseat together.. put in the surround and stuff i bought .. then strapped in a couple outfits a hat a couple blankets, binkie, and socks, and strapped it in like a baby. so When baby girl decides to make an appearance and im totally unprepared with no bag .. all my hubby has to do is grab the carseat i packed.. lol.. fool proof measure.. i guess i will just make hubby bring me up clothes.. and ill have to suffer with whatever he brings.. but baby will be nice and cozy.. so.. this is massively long but i feel like talking.. and since no one is answering their phones to my calls.. i guess i just get to put it all out there for you ladies.. enjoy.. and now since no one answered.. im going to have a million calls back.. "did you have the baby!!!" "nope, just bored.. wanted to talk"

  • your so close!!! I was thinking of packing my bag today. I dont know why i've got weeks, but when I woke up, I was like, "pack a damn bag!" lol
    I accidentally broke the desk that my computer sits on..the pull out tray that holds the keyboard broke under the massive weight of my leg that I had swung up there to rest..
    anyway it made such a loud crash, Dakota kicked the tar out of me. I guess she's ok!

  • Just a few more days--hang in there! I know how hard it is--this week is crawling by for me--patience is not one of my attributes.

    Kelly--I laughed reading about the computer desk--totally something I would do!!!

  • oh, the buzzer thing. my son would sleep during NSTs and the nurse would come in and buzz me. he would kick a couple of times and then go back to sleep! then the nurse would come back and buzz me again!!

    good luck, and i hope the week goes by quickly!

  • Ha ha! Hadn't seen the buzzer thing before but too funny at her reaction. Glad to hear you have a light at the end of the tunnel.
